November 10: Shostakovich Quartet No. 8

Join us Tuesday, November 10, for Inner Revelations: A Performance and Conversation on Dmitri Shostakovich's deeply personal String Quartet No. 8, Opus 110, composed in 1960.

Violinist Maria Sampen and violist Timothy Christie are joined by cellist Kevin Krentz and violinist Linnea Johansen to discuss and perform this masterful string quartet by one of the 20th Century's greatest composers.

Often in disgrace under the Stalin regime for his "bourgeois decadence" and Western influence, Shostakovich's works are marked by strong emotion, wit and parody. This event, 7pm in Slavonian Hall, is not one to miss!
